I have not stayed here, but have been to the Black gold cafe downstairs and the Crystal bar on the third floor. They have really nice cocktails at this bar and,you have sitting places with a view of the park. On the day we were there, there was wildlife to be seen in the park so that was nice. There... More

Does the job as it's close to the airport. The hotel is pretty simple, wouldn't call it 5* and for the price i paid i expected 5* treatment which i did not get. I booked via TripAdvisor and when it came to checking out they couldn't retrieve my card details from TripAdvisor. The manger spent so long trying which nearly... More

After our 14 day safari in Kenya and Tanzania, we chose to stay at The Panari to have a relaxing and enjoyable one night stay before heading home. The Panari's web-site read well, it seemed well appointed and it was very close to the airport. They had given us less than average rooms, the carpet had stains and was thread... More

Stayed a night due to my Turkish Airlines flight being canceled. The room was exquisite, minus a stiffer mattress and very limited satellite channel options. My room had a coffee maker, 40" TV, bath robes with slippers, toiletry kit, and more. I thought I was staying in a Hilton Hotel in Europe or something. The breakfast had a massive spread... More

Fantastic! The hotel is top notch and can't be faulted! very close to the airport, which is perfect for eastern African traffic! Staff are very friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and food is great. I will certainly be back! Even has an ice rink on the second floor which was great fun!

I usually check in at the Black Gold Cafe at The Panari Hotel along Mombasa road, the staff are so friendly that every time I get caught up in traffic I just branch for coffee and finish my work (their internet is also fast) I spoke to their relationship Manager Bernard who made my visits more than pleasant, his conversations...

First and hopefully last time.... Old, really out of date, in the middle of NO where, really bad food, room service is a joke (menu and price are a rape), service quality is bad... Cannot find a single positive aspect... Hope to forget the experience as soon as possible.

Hotel located close to the international airport. Good structure with restaurants and bars. I recommend you ask for a national park room view. Safety is good, you cross to metal detectors before get in the hotel.

For one of the most expensive hotels in Kenya you would expect something awesome. It's run down, rooms are cramped and full of cheap, gaudy furniture, food was bland and ridiculously expensive. It felt like a strip mall in a run down town, but shiny. Also my husband notes all the the wall hangings were crooked. Stay at the Boma... More
